Verdict

AQUADABRA needs to leave behind a disappointing effort at Bath when last sighted but she's bagged a low draw and makes stronger appeal on her third over the extended 5f at Bath on her penultimate outing. Navarra Princess has been knocking on the door over 7f and has place claims over this shorter trip, while any money for Irish raider Billyfairplay, who struck over this trip at Newcastle nine days ago, would also be notable.

Verdict

SILENTLY may be able to finally break her maiden in a race lacking in depth. She has shaped as though six furlongs may suit and she may improve for the first time blinkers. Cupid's Arrow makes appeal on his second run after wind surgery. Navarra Princess is more consistent than most and may prove best of the remainder.
